Rosie O’Donnell’s estranged daughter, Chelsea Alliegro, is pregnant.
The 19-year-old revealed that she is expecting in an interview with Daily Mail on Tuesday, but said that she doesn’t want O’Donnell to be a part of her baby’s life.
“I’ve always wanted a family and I’m looking forward to it. But Rosie will not be in my child’s life — and no, I do not feel sad about that to be honest,” Alleigro said.
The expectant mother, who married her 31-year-old boyfriend, Nick Alliegro, last year, has had a contentious relationship with O’Donnell in recent years, and has been vocal about their tumultuous past.
Alliegro revealed that she’s nine weeks pregnant, and that she’s due in early May.
O’Donnell reacted to the news on Twitter, thrashing the article’s reporter for allegedly exploiting her daughter. “That’s Martin Gould – predatory reporter for The Daily Mail – old creepy man who pays my ill daughter to do interviews,” O’Donnell tweeted.
” F**k u Martin Gould. [I’m] gonna find you Martin Gould… you cowardly old s**t!” she ranted. “There you are Martin Gould – lets see what we can find out about your life – your family – gonna dig deep Martin into you – you s**t.”
“Martin Gould has a birthday next month – this is his neurotypical daughter – Martin — his wife and kids are on Facebook – check him out.”
The news of Alliegro’s pregnancy comes days after O’Donnell’s ex-wife Michelle Rounds died unexpectedly at her home in Florida. Her death, which some have reported was a suspected suicide, is still being investigated by the Orange County, Florida Sheriff’s Department.
“I am saddened to hear about this terrible tragedy,” O’Donnell said in a statement to ET following news of Rounds’ death. “Mental illness is a very serious issue affecting many families. My thoughts and prayers go out to Michelle’s family, her wife Krista, and their child.”
